  2. To fans of free improvisation and the Japanese onkyo, or noise scene, Toshimaru Nakamura needs no introduction; to newcomers, the name of his instrument the no-input mixing board may sound forbidding, as if its output would sound more machine than music. But for over a decade, Nakamura has cultivated a world of tones from this unlikely instrument, both harsh and mesmerizing, humanist and expansive with something to lure in music fans of any stripe.

    Says founder of Samadhisound David Sylvian, Egrets has Toshi's signature minimalist stamp but sonically there's a lot more variation to this work. I have great admiration for Toshi, for his sense of discipline, his risk taking, his openness, generosity and intelligence.

  3. Like a cavalry army, the no-input mixer and feed-backing guitar are fluid and powerful but difficult to control precisely. Justin Asher's "Siege of Zhongdu" is an interactive, electronic feedback piece for a trio of no-input mixer and 2 feedback controlled stratocaster guitars played through hand held honeytone amps. The no-input mixer controls the output of each feed-backing guitar and integrates their sound in to the loops generated by the mixer, multiplying it's waves. The graphic score translates the long range movements of a 5 year siege of the ancient city of Zhongdu by the army of the infamous Mongol conqueror Genghis Khan in to sonic and physical movements of the trio. The result, like the siege, is violent, plotting and overwhelmingly successful.
